At the beginning of training in health care and nursing, it is quite possible to be guided by idealistic ideas. During the training, future nurses suddenly see health care and medical care from a different angle through various internships. The value and moral concepts now experienced are no longer in line with the initial understanding. The positive aspects of health care and nursing, such as joy, gratitude, recognition, community, interdisciplinary cooperation, constant opportunities for knowledge acquisition, flexibility in the area, but also positive emotions and much more, are no longer perceived. This could lead to quit the training or the already practiced nursing profession.199 trainees from the general health and nursing schools of the Neunkirchen National Hospital and the Wiener Neustadt Regional Hospital, as well as from the school for general health and nursing and child and adolescent care at the Landesklinikum Graz, were interviewed concerning their idea of morality as well as their values in the health care and nursing sector. The interviews were conducted in the first and repeated in the third year of training by means of an anonymous, partly standardized questionnaire. The aim of this exploratory longitudinal study was to determine whether future caregivers are already established in their values and moral attitudes in respect of health and medical care when entering the training, or whether they have changed during the three years of training.
